Date Responded 09 August 2018

Provision of information held by Northumbria Police made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the 'Act')

As you may be aware the purpose of the Act is to allow a general right of access to information held at the time of a request, by a Public Authority (including the Police), subject to certain limitations and exemptions.

You asked:

  1. For every calendar day in 2018 so far, the number of domestic-abuse related crimes that were recorded by police on that day.
  2. I would also like to know, of those, how many were crimes involving violence against the person, and how many were sexual crimes.
  3. I would also like to know how many (if any) were classed as a) rape; b) GBH; c) attempted murder; or d) murder 

In Response:

We have now had the opportunity to fully consider your request and I provide a response for your attention. 

Following receipt of your request, searches were conducted with the Corporate Development Department of Northumbria Police. I can confirm that the information you have requested is held by Northumbria Police. 

I am able to disclose the located information to you as follows. 

The information provided was sourced from a database which was used to download all crimes where there was a domestic violence flag between the  dates specified.  The data was then filtered to show those offences requested 

Point 3 does not include attempted rape or wounding with intent to do GBH. 

With the above in mind please see the attached .
